Leandro Trossard left Anfield stunned as his hat-trick secured a 3-3 draw with Liverpool in Roberto De Zerbi’s first game as new Brighton manager.

The Seagulls ace is the first opposition player to score three Premier League goals at home to Liverpool since Andrey Arshavin netted four for Arsenal in 2009.

De Zerbi couldn’t contain himself as he made his way to the pitch

It looked like Liverpool were going to have a tough night from the start when Trossard spun a pressured Trent Alexander-Arnold and fired home to open the scoring just four minutes into the match.

Things quickly got worse when the Belgian doubled Brighton’s lead but an in-form Roberto Firmino then had his say.

The Brazilian equalized both of Trossard’s goals before Adam Webster slotted the ball into his own net to complete the Reds’ comeback.

However, there was more drama to come when Liverpool failed completely to manage a cross into the box, allowing Trossard to sweep home once more in the 83rd minute.

The result and performance put more pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s side who are now 11 points off the league lead and struggling both in defense and attack.

Alexander-Arnold had been the subject of much debate after being left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Nations League matches against Italy and Germany, and had a fierce defense from from his club coach before the game.

However, the right-back was left on the ground for Trossard’s opener and missed the late redemption when a potential free-kick winner was knocked down by Robert Sanchez.

The club had a troubled summer when key striker Sadio Mane opted to leave for Bayern Munich and his £64m move. [rising to £85m] the replacement Darwin Nunez has not yet started.

Firmino seemed to have eased some of the pressure by equaling his Premier League goal tally last season, but Trossard’s third ended that narrative.

And Liverpool will need to get back into shape quickly, with Arsenal next in the league, where a Gunners win could create a gargantuan 14-point gap between the sides.
